Fremont, CA, January 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- This webinar highlights the importance of and offers insights into automating vendor risk management.
Research suggests a strong link between an organization’s bottom line and the way it invests in and handles vendor risk management. Such organizations reap clear and demonstrable benefits, such as reduced number of security breaches, fewer instances of data theft or loss and a much lighter audit burden, which frees up time and resources.
Thus, automation is critical to an effective and scalable vendor risk management program, since it enables the organization to manage an increasing number of vendors, thereby reducing the need for people to perform repetitive, sometimes tedious tasks, and allows them to focus on higher value functions, such as analysis and remediation.
Automating vendor risk management is not a one-day process. It is a far-reaching initiative within any organization, as it touches on several areas of responsibility including IT, Legal, Audit, Purchasing and Management. This requires effective communication strategies, both inside the organization and with the vendor community, providing training, timely information and feedback loops.
This webinar will teach participants some of the strategies by which they can introduce ever higher levels of automation into their vendor risk management program, gaining quick wins and rewarding executive sponsors with tangible results.
The speaker will help participants understand the various approaches to vendor risk management and determine the best path to implementation for their organization. He will also impart strategies for gaining commitment from stakeholders, something that is considered an essential step in implementing any organizational change. Ways of using vendor classification to reduce costs and improve compliance and maximizing the benefits of an effective vendor risk management using dashboard reporting and on-going remediation processes are some of the other learning outcomes of this session.
